Posted: November 26, 2018

Dancers with the Ballet Folklorico Internacional in Reno perform at the 2017 La Posada Celebration at Western Nevada College in Carson City.

There will be activities for the entire family at the second annual La Posada Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 15 from noon to 3 p.m. at Carson Nugget Hall in the Aspen Building on Western Nevada College’s Carson City campus.

“It’s a family event with a touch of the Latin American culture, where the community can gather to get into the Christmas spirit,” said WNC Latino Outreach Coordinator Lupe Ramirez.

WNC’s Latino Cohort, the Associated Students of Western Nevada and the PUENTE Parent Committee will host the three-hour event, which will include traditional activities for the entire family.

There will be piñatas for children and adults, face painting, arts and crafts, folkloric dancing, Christmas music in Spanish and traditional food served during these festivities such as tamales, posole and hot tea made of fresh fruits (also known as ponche).
